Read Handed: Caught in the Act: an Anthology of Performance Art by Canadian Women

by Leah Sandals

Fuse, May 2006, v. 29, no. 2, pp. 39-41

Caught in the Act, a book about Canadian performance in general, is introduced by six general essays on apologie, humor, and women’s performance in Vancouver, Dot Tuer’s 1980s’ piece, a review by Elizabeth Chitty and Jayne Wark’s analysis of costume. A welcome find, Caught in the Act gets snagged in the spin cycle of Canadian cultural hype.
